I am sure, gentlemen, that when it's done, it will be well-publicized and nobody will have to ask. Until then, pestering tends to diminish enthusiasm for finishing promised work... this is something I've learned after taking a couple too many custom orders.

I will be happy to see it when it's ready to be seen.

Finishing? HA ha. Truth is, the customer didn't want that piece. The blade I made in this thread was featured in David Darom's book and went on to sell at Mastersmith's in NYC, for what it's worth.

I might revisit the concept this Summer, who knows? Maybe. Maybe not. I teach a damascus class at Peter's Valley in about a week and then have 7 weeks of relatively free time. I have smelting projects to do and a bouzouki to make, some beekeeping, finishing a chicken coop, rebuilding a drywell and cutting some serious firewood. That and planning for my Fall jewelry and metalsmithing classes. I'm getting blacksmithing up and running at the school, so I gotta scrounge some materials and make a forge.

There will be some blades for sure this Summer though, as I have to have something to show for Ashokan, right?

Wait. You keep bee's, Yul? That's awesome! We need to talk when I brew my next batch requiring honey. More than happy to pay for it. I just prefer to use as much all natural ingredients as possible...tastes better!
